What is this test?

Genome Scan for Chromosomal Microassay Analysis Blood test is a medical genetic test, that helps to find out the blood diseases or conditions that are caused due to mutations in the genes of an individual.

What Chromosomal Microarray Analysis:

Chromosomal microassay CMA is a type of chromosomal test which can detect extra (duplication of chromosomes) and missing (deletion) chromosome material in the patients who are having genetic disorders or diseases. This test can not detect the chromosomes that switch spots and are upside down.

CMA can detect more than 150 genetic conditions that are caused by chromosome deletions and duplications.

Why this test is performed:

This test is performed to check if an individual is having any genetic mutations that can cause blood diseases or not. This test may be recommended to you by a physician if you or your family members have any inherited diseases, low iron levels, blood cancer, increased clotting time, delay in wound healing, very low levels of red blood cells etc.

This test also helps the doctors to plan the treatment according to the type of gene that gets mutated and the condition that affects the individual. In some cases, this test is also performed to check the effectiveness of the treatment.
